Thor actor Chris Hemsworth has revealed that he is extremely disappointed that the film’s director Kenneth Branagh will not be returning to direct the sequel. Chris also admitted that Kenneth’s decision to leave the directing duties to somebody else has left him quite upset.
Hemsworth explained, "I'm really disappointed/ Ken built that character, and everything I know about the Thor world I learned while shoulder-to-shoulder with Ken. I learned so much from him." Chris did add that he respected Branagh’s decision.
He continued, "As long as he's happy, that's the thing, I learned so much from Ken while we built [the first film], so at least I had that time with someone like that. The start of anything creative is the most important period in a way. That's when the most can go wrong, and Ken made sure we got it right." Chris Hemsworth is currently filming as Thor in The Avengers.
